Munce and Derbyshire Hope to Repeat History; Horses and Jockeys Ready for the 100 Club Cup Tomorrow at the Gympie Turf Club

Article excerpt

GYMPIE trainer Kerry Munce and stable apprentice Billie-Rose Derbyshire will be hoping that history repeats at tomorrow's 100 Club Cup race meeting.

The duo combined to win four of the five races at last year's 100 Club Cup race day including the 100 Club Cup with their star galloper, Frenardi.

Frenardi, who has now retired, turned in a barn-storming finish to land the 2014 100 Club Cup by a head over the 1030m to land his 19th race win.

In addition the Munce stable also won with Tallahatchie, River of Glory and Frisco Rain.

On Saturday, Kerry Munce has 10 horses in the five event card including Tallahatchie and Legazpi in the 100 Club Cup whilst River of Glory is engaged in the 1030m Open.

Subsequent to last year's 100 Club Cup race day, River of Glory went on to win the $20,000 Nolan Meats Muster Cup as well as the $18,500 River Junction Gympie Cup, both over 1600m to cover himself in further glory. Tomorrow River of Glory will be having his third run back from a spell over the 1030m which appears to be short of his best distance.

Another of last year's winners on the same day, Onlines, has shown a liking for the Gympie sand track.

This Mail Train mare won her maiden at last year's meeting by six lengths and then went on to be undefeated in two subsequent Gympie starts.

She has recently resumed from a break after campaigning on the Birdsville circuit last year.

Devoted Milliner Cup

EXCELLENT fields will face the starter for the five race card tomorrow with 50 horses accepting for the program.

A field of 11 has accepted for the 1600m Devoted Milliner 100 Club Cup which carries $10,000 in total prize money.

For the first time the 100 Club cup is a restricted race being a Benchmark 55 event reverting to the 1600m distance.

Legazpi heads the weights with 62kg but will carry 59kg with the 3kg allowance of apprentice Jed Hodge.

His stable mate, Tallahatchie will be ridden by Billie-Rose Derbyshire in the race.

The field includes recent Gympie 1470m winner, Dayuan (T. Williams) as well as the well performed Wondai galloper, Count Romano (H. …
